Shahid Rahman 

Prof. Shahid Rahman
Full professor for logic and epistemology University of Lille (3), Professeur de la classe exceptionnelle pour la section CNU philosophie Elected member (2011) of the Comité national français d’histoire et de philosophie des sciences rattache à l’academie des sciences, Scientific Director of the Research project ADA(Argumentation, Decission and Action), that unifies 19-research laboratories in the Humanities and Social Sciences of Nord-Pas de Calais (France).
Research fields:
Philosophy of logic (dialogical logic) and epistemology, philosophy of science. My main contribution, is to have developed the conception of dialogical logic as a general frame to build, combine and study logics (at present about 40 logics have been studied) where meaning is understood as the result of the interaction between epistemic agents. This work is part of what is being called the dynamic turn in logic and epistemology with the specificity that my researches are directed towards re-establishing the link between logic and argumentative practices within the context of logic, language and philosophy of science.
